Words of wisdom: never update to the newest version of a software till you know for sure that everything you use on a daily basis will work with it.
I updated to OS X Lion (Apple's "most advanced desktop operating system") and as it turns out, none of my music software works on it. So now I'm back to the basics. I erased my main hard drive, re-installed the original operating system, and right now, I'm installing all my music software. Some of my sound libraries take three-four full days to install. I'll be busy for a while... but not all hope is lost. I still have my laptop to compose on. (But I can't transfer songs between computers, so I can't work on the Comedy or Sci-Fi piece till my main computer is back up and running.)
College starts this Monday (the 22nd). Am I nervous? Eh... no. I just hope I can learn to balance everything. Quickly.
This past week, my family and I went to Panama for a family vacation. It was very nice. Six hour car ride both ways = composing time on laptop. I couldn't think of what to compose though. So, I decided to just... compose. No direction, no inspiration. I just wanted to see where the music would take me. You could say I doodled (musically) for six hours. This is what I came up with:
[song taken down. if you must hear it, just leave a comment or shoot me an email. but you're not missing out on much haha...]
I honestly don't know what to name it. That's why I called it T.B.D. Any name ideas?
Let me know what you think of it! ("It" being only a doodle...) What does it make you think of?
Since college is starting soon, it might be a while before I post next! So, until then...
Thanks for listening,
